Gibraltar Teachers accredited by United Nations organisation

Eco Warriors Assembly St Bernard's Lower Primary Credit: Gibraltar Government

SEVEN Gibraltar teachers have successfully attended the UN Climate Change Teacher Academy in association with the One United Nations Climate Change Learning Partnership.

As accredited Climate Change Teachers, they can now deliver up-to-date climate change lessons to all pupils and will be able to encourage and generate social innovation, and prepare today’s youth to protect the planet.

Being amongst the first international teachers to gain accreditation, Bayside, Westside and St Bernard’s Upper Primary Schools have been marked on the teachers’ Climate Change World map of the United Nations.

They will be working alongside 80 international schools in an initial trial of the course which will eventually include the UK.

This will cover topics including climate change science, gender and the environment, children and climate change, cities and climate change, and human health.

This year students will focus on waste reduction and will aim to influence adults to change their ways.
